Aim of EURO-NanoTox-Letters
The aim of EURO-NanoTox-Letters is to increase knowledge on interactions of nanoparticles in the physiological context by investigating adsorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination of nanparticles in order to find out to which extent toxicity testing guidelines of drug products for nanoparticles can be used for the assessment of nanoparticles’ toxicity.
Research on the toxic effects of nanoparticles was started by reports that nano-sized combustion products may cause health problems. The potential toxic effects on workers exposed to nanoparticles, which are generated either as by-products during the production or that consist of the final product itself, are another important topic for nanotoxicological research. Increasingly, nanoparticles are also designed for drug-delivery, medical devices and imaging in medicine. Although products, which are used in medical treatment, are subjected to strict guidelines, these guidelines may not apply for nanoparticle-based therapeutics.
